Mr. Burns

mr burnsMr. Burns is a highly acclaimed new comedy by Bay Area born Anne Washburn. The story starts out dark when a group of strangers work to recreate, from memory, an episode of The Simpsons. Their story continues, decades later, as their memories have turned it into a almost religious-like story that is staged for a live theater crowd. It's funny, yet powerful and a look inside how we recreate memories and the truth.
